Bill and Janice have created some very different cross-stitch designs
I helped them stitch some of the above pieces,
I stitched the Egyptian Maze, Pink Elephants
and some of the Celtic designs
Beatitudes (top left bottom picture),
Benedicat, Pax Vobiscum and In Principio,
I also stitched some of the cottages show top left of the top picture,
they are local to Minehead and the surrounding areas
her work is so different and absolutely beautiful.
I have to admit I did spend quite a bit of money on her stall,
and probably will buy more pieces.
She did amazing pieces of work all by hand as the displays said many times.
Television has a lot to answer for!
I got great inspiration from the pieces and now
my poor little brain has gone into overdrive!
This is a childs chair
stitched and pulled thread work
"The Button Box"
The Pearls of Wisdom display
These diamond shapes were no more than 2" long
Each square no more than a inch pieced together in shades
of brown, and if you looked at it from another direction it just
looked like a quilt in shades of brown.
There were loads of other stalls of different things too.
There will be another craft fair in Exeter in January I shall be there either
helping Janice or visiting with a friend.
That is the Craft4Crafters let me know if you will be able to visit.
I will try and meet up!
fair 28th to 30th January 2010
